November is American Diabetes Month and this years them is “Eat Well, America!” As the American Diabetes Association® celebrates its 75th anniversary, they want to share a timeless message—that eating well is one of life’s greatest pleasures, and enjoying delicious, healthy food helps with diabetes management. This November, the Association will show our nation how easy and joyful healthy eating can be.
Each week, the Association will share nutritious recipes selected by noted chefs and cookbook authors for every meal of the day, including snacks and special occasion treats. Not only that, but they’ll teach you how to choose, prepare, serve and eat healthy food that is both delicious and nutritious. From tip sheets to shopping lists, we’ll help you make healthy eating a fun and easy part of your daily life.
Everyone deserves to enjoy food that makes them feel happy, strong and empowered, and the Association will inspire people to eat well while also successfully managing their diabetes.
Check back for upcoming recipes (see calendar below), and be sure to share them with friends and family. It’s a great way to put good food and good health on the table.
